We booked this last minute .. supposedly a half price deal but unfortunately the room was awful. The carpet so badly stained we kept our socks on the whole time .. the stains brought the look of the room down immensely. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was clean. The location is good .. lots of shops and bars...

This is a lovely hotel. We stayed in a comfort room, it was clean with comfortable beds. We had a room at the front overlooking a lively street. If you close the window you can't hear any noise. Wonderful breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. The location couldn't be better, lots of nice bars and restaurants. The first night we had...

The hotel offers good value for money and is located in the heart of Mitte with excellent transport links. We had a standard double room facing onto Oranienburger Strasse. It was well insulated from the noise of the street, although not particularly private (there are blackout blinds thankfully). The open-plan bathroom was unusual but absolutely fine. The room was modern,...

In the Center of a vibrant neighborhood. Very lively quarter. The Hotel is in good condition. Public transportation of any kind in front or around the corner. Breakfast is good with a great selection of food. The bar is closed on Monday. WiFi Workshop good. The room is small but big enough. Flat TV, mini bar and a small Safe...

Me and my partner stayed here for a long weekend, hotel room was great and suited us perfectly as a couple, though bear in mind the shower area is only concealed by a thin curtain. Hotel is in a great location only a quick hop and a jump from the underground and next to many brilliant places to eat, I...

Very nice hotel, centrally located, with excellent staff and service. Many restaurants and things to see nearby, all within walking distance. We had a room with a good view of the city. Streets and the area around the hotel are quiet at night, and on Sunday morning the city appears to be abandoned.

Great location, comfortable room, good bar, good restaurant, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Oh and the location is perfect too! Many of the main attractions are walkable, if not there is a tram stop directly outside or S/U-bahn stations within a few minutes' walk. Lots of trendy bars, restaurants, cafes and arts centres on the street. Much helped by getting a...

This is an ideal hotel for visiting all the points of interest in central Berlin. There is easy access to both the tram & U & S Bahn stations. The rooms are spacious and clean.

I don't leave an excellent feedback only due to Susan the receptionist employed that was ignorant, arrogant and not available to solve a problem. Modern,elegant and clean hotel, great buffet breakfast, central position.

Not my first time in the Velvet. From here you can see at a walking distance the most of Berlin's must see. Frills might be expensive. Walls needs a hand of fresh painting maybe... What I like: bed comfortable, room's smart layout. Acoustic ear's protection provided. What I dislike: rooms facing the road are noisy. Cost of a still water...

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
